Extend Magento 1 Support with a Certified Magento Agency
Magento 1 support is drawing to an end next month, leaving the over 150,000 merchants still running on the platform vulnerable to cyber security threats. If you have not completed your Magento 2 migration, your ecommerce site may be in danger from cyber attacks. Partnering with a certified Magento agency, like Forix, can help you to maintain security and support for your Magento 1 website. By providing around the clock security monitoring and managed support services, we can help protect your Magento 1 site from the unknown after official support ends for the platform next month.
What Happens After M1 EOL in June?
Once official support for the Magento 1 platform ends on June 30th, you probably won’t notice any immediate changes to your M1 website. On July 1st, websites still running on Magento 1 should continue to function normally. However, without official support, websites on M1 will become increasingly vulnerable to hackers, cyber attacks, and malware. M1 End of Life is common knowledge, which means that everyone, including hackers, will know that Magento 1 websites will be vulnerable and ripe for attack.
Additionally, as official support for Magento 1 ends, the support for many extensions specific to the platform will also stop receiving support and updates. This means that essential extensions that allow you to take online payments, manage content, perform on site search, and other functions that are crucial to the functionality of your website will begin to break down. Without managed support from certified Magento developers to keep your extensions and website functioning correctly, you may lose important aspects of your website.
